Quinn Abenakyo set the bar high for Miss Uganda and this year’s pageant has been filled with a lot of anticipation from the organizers, the contestants and the general public as well. It is believed that the next Miss Uganda will have to prove and do more than what Abenakyo did. Last evening, the public got a chance to see how talented the 22 participants are through ‘Talent search’.

With the pageant being about much more than beauty, participants exhibited different talents which included dancing, news anchoring and reporting, poetry, fashion and design, miming, cultural dances and make-up among others, all in the name of pleasing the panel of judges that included Brenda Nanyonjo, Ali Alibhai, Ronnie Mulindwa, and Wycliffe Luyombya.

The judges were pleased with some showcases especially from Nabirah Nagawa who wowed everyone with her display of Maganda dances. She was so good to the extent that both the judges and the crowd gave her a standing ovation.

Another contestant that did well was Nyamate Mariam who was the emcee of the event although some sections of the crowd were a bit dissatisfied. They thought she was given more time on the stage unlike other contestants who were given only three minutes. The crowd was mostly comprised of relatives, friends and families of the contestants and every time their candidate stepped on stage, they cheered on while holding their placards.

The colorful event also saw Nina Rose performing some of her top songs like ‘Munda dala’, ‘Anayinama’ and ‘Olumya baano’.

Meanwhile the other highlight of the evening was a surprise proposal from one member of the audience to his girlfriend that drew wild cheers when she said yes.
